Heating up
Man Candy: A Real Love Novel - Jessica Lemmon

This is book #3, in the Real Love series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to have a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading this series in order.


Becca walks in to work and has a few surprises right away.  One of them being a new hottie she had never seen around here.  He makes her tingle and she wants to let him know she has her eye on him before he can get away.


Dax has taken a time out.  It all built up until it was too much.  Then he meets someone who is not only worth his time, but really finds him worth it.  Can they get their timing right and meet one another in the middle?


Such a sexy story with the heat building almost from the very first page.  With each spark flying, there is character development, sizzling personalities, and much more.  I found that this was a great installment to the series also.  Maybe we will get lucky and this one will make it to the big screen?  In the mean time, I will give it a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Man Candy: A Real Love Novel - Jessica Lemmon

Dax Vaughn needs a break from his life.  His father recently passed away and he has been stopping his life to take care of his mother.  Now he just needs some quite time and has rented a cabin at Grand Lark Retreat in Tennessee for two weeks.  On the day Dax arrives, he stops at the bar/restaurant on the property and is immediately taken by the bartender/waitress who just showed up and getting chewed out by her boss.

Becca Stone has been wandering through life aimlessly.  She is not sure what she wants to do in her and has tried multiple jobs.  Now she's back in her hometown, living and working for her brother, Tad.  Tad is beyond irritated with his little sister and just wants her to grow up.  After Tad "fires" Becca yet again at the bar, she decides she is going to check out the hot guy sitting by himself.  Maybe she find a quick one-night stand.

Things escalate pretty quickly between Dax and Becca and what was suppose to be only one night is quickly turning into more.  Neither of these two expected the explosion that happened when they hooked up but neither of them can deny it.  Dax thinks he may have actually found someone he could have something real with.....too bad Becca is used to just running away when things get good.

It was great watching the relationship between Dax and Becca play out.  It was a tough rough road, mostly for Becca but it was sure worth it in the end.  Their happy ending was just perfect!  

I really love this series.  If you are looking for some fun, enjoyable, hot stories, give this series a try!

Man Candy (Real Love #3)
Man Candy: A Real Love Novel - Jessica Lemmon

eARC courtesy of Random House Publishing Group (Loveswept) and NetGalley
Street date in Jan 9th 2018

Dax is on a trip to get away, having recently lost his dad. He's got a remote cabin rented for camping. Becca works for her brother. Having been late one too many times, she got fired. Loudly, in front of Dax (and some other people). She noticed Dax and thought he was hot. Dax noticed Becca and thought she was hot.
What follows is their one-night stand, turned 2 week affair, turned coupledom. I liked the duel POV. Dax was decent. Becca, not-so-much. Becca was immature, annoying, and flighty. Sure, she improved by the end, but I didn't really buy into the romance because it took her the whole book to get there. I did like the appearances in the end by the first 2 "book couples" Vince/Jackie and Grace/Davis. 
My least favorite of the 3.

Man Candy: A Real Love Novel
Man Candy: A Real Love Novel - Jessica Lemmon It's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game. Jessica Lemmon gets that and that's what makes her stories so precious. She fights for the underdog and that's a role we all can relate to. In love, in life and heart, we've all walked a mile in those shoes. Becca is the ultimate long shot. She has a sweet heart, but is a bit clueless when it comes to life. As her world is falling apart, she manages to fall in love, with the one man who can either bring her to her knees or make all her dreams come true. Dax is no hero. He's just a man with a lot on his plate and no room in his heart. Can a loner and a free spirit find love in the middle of nowhere? Man Candy is an addiction that will live on long after the last page is devoured.

Great Story and Characters
Arm Candy (Real Love) - Jessica Lemmon

Grace found a two dollar tip left for her on the bar and there was a phone number and the  name Greg on one of the bills. Grace wondered if a guy really thought that worked on a bar mistress as Grace l8iked to be called and she worked at McGreevy’s Pub. Also Grace didn’t believe there was a real Mr. Right for a woman. Every relationship had an expiration date as far as Grace was concerned. Grace’s parents had been divorce lawyers and they were divorced then Grace’s dad took off and she tried but had no relationship with her dad that ended when he didn’t show up for her college graduation. Grace had worked at the pub since the beginning of summer. Davis comres in the pub most every day he asked they turned  the tv to CNN instead of sports for him. He had a seat at the bar that he claimed as his own. Davis ordered a bottle of Sam Adams and kept his eyes to the tv in between trading barbs with Grace. Lately he has paid more attention to Grace then she likes. Grace is attracted to davis so she copes with that with antagonism. Davis wears his standard attire of a pressed expensive suit. Davis noticed when Grace had changed her hairstyle. Even if Grace and davis had more than a passing curiosity about each other Davis likes his women in pearls not rhinestones. Blondes not redheads, loose pastels not skin tight skinny jeans, and no ornamental piercings and tattoos and Grace had both. Little did Grace know she excited Davis but he didn’t like it. Davis had a brush with that type of danger and he didn’t want to get burnt again. Davis dates a lot and the women aren’t exciting and blonde. Grace is a redhead and exciting. There’s nothing controlled or routine about Grace. Grace is hot in such a way that a man could go blind in both eyes and still notice Grace. Nothing’s as attractive as the way Grace’s voice dips into a husky alto when she is serious and when she lilts into laughter when she is not. Davis can’t pound out the tension brewing brewing between them in a marathon of sweaty no-holds- barred sex so they pick on each other. Grace’s brand of fiery excitement and unpredictability could disturb the smooth surface of his carefully maintained Zen. That davis can’t allow, he plays by his own set of rules and has for some time. Grace strikes davis as a girl who couldn’t be boring if she tried. Davis had been engaged to Hanna who was a redhead and they were to marry but she left him while he was standing at the altar and she was forever gone. Grace bets Davis he won’t ask a redhead out and he turns around and asks Grace out who he calls Gracie. Davis had slept with Grace but didn’t spend the night as tomorrow was the day Davis makes a sandwich and remembered how Hanna liked Brie cheese and the memories hit him and that hadn’t happened in four years he thought that would have been the last time but apparently not. Gracie had let davis know she would be there if he needed someone to talk to if he wanted to. Then Davis’s friend Vice asked Grace the last time she had seen Davis. Later she gets a call from Vince that Davis is home and alright but wants to be alone. Grace is still worried and goes to Davis’s house and he was on his way out and not even drunk . then davis tells Grace he was on his way to find her Davis had decided to get over what had happened to him that day but six years ago . They had slept together two times when Davis started to talk after they had sexz and told Grace he was suppose to have been married six years ago and told her about Hanna and what had happened.

I loved this story. I loved the the pace and plot. I loved how Gracie and Davis’s feelings grew throughout the book. I loved how Grace and Davis were with each other before their first date.  I loved how davis got the courage to back to the pub  after Grace broke up with him and hurt him  and went in even though Grace was on bar. Davis is a great character and my new book boyfriend. I loved how Vince and Davis were close and how they were with each other. I felt bad grace didn’t have a relationship with her dad until he was dying. This was an all around good read and actually seemed very realistic to me. I couldn’t find anything to complain about in this book and that is great. I loved the characters and the ins and outs  of this book and I highly recommend.
